Diamana ZF Golf Shaft Detailed Review

Design and Technology

Mitsubishi designed the ZF shaft to be incredibly stable but create feel and feedback that lets golfers effortlessly produce more acceleration through the hitting area. MR70 carbon fiber has been integrated into the ZF shaft specifically to create more strength, (20% stronger than other materials) and more consistency (10% higher modulus). Boron is used to reinforce the golf shaft to stand up to all types of swing style and speeds and create enhanced energy transfer for better results at impact.

Our Experience

Diamana is a brand I have used and loved many times. My one exception with it has always been, the whiteboard style gives me the best numbers, but the blueboard feels so much better. Also, the difference in these two, now DF and BF, models made it difficult to fit golfers of select swing speeds or that required more versatility when coming from different areas of the golf course with a fairway wood. ZF solves each of these problems wonderfully. ZF is versatile enough to give to players that swing at almost any speed and can be used in a fairway wood to launch the golf ball higher into greens from fairways and roughs or create laser-like penetrating shots with that same club coming from the tee.

It is extremely easy to see why Justin Thomas and others have moved to the ZF shaft. Its stability helped me tighten my strike dispersion and enabled me to hit any shot I wanted to during testing and play. I have played Mitsubishi’s Tensei CK Pro Orange shaft for more than two season now but the ZF is making a serious contention for my driver spot and my fairway wood as well. The standout feature of the Diamana ZF shaft is how easily I could hit it high, hit it low, and the versatility it created from a variety of lies with my fairway woods.

The ZF importantly will also fit almost any driver or fairway wood style and may enable you to continue to pound your favorite clubs with more ease and less stress and expense.
